It depends: Ciclopirox cream is used to treat infections caused by fungus, and therefore may be used to treat ringworm, candida, tinea versicolor and possibly seborrheic dermatitis.

Which is the most effective cream for seborrheic dermatitis facial region (ketocanzole 2%, ciclopirox 1%, or pimecrolimus 1%)?

Which is the most effective cream for seborrheic dermatitis facial region (ketocanzole 2%, ciclopirox 1%, or pimecrolimus 1%)?

Ketoconazole: Ketoconazole is my preference. Apply 2x/day for 1-2 weeks, and then you can use a couple of times/week as maintenance/prevention. Short term use of 1% hydrocortisone cream 1-2/x day can be used for a few days also to minimize redness and irritation. Don't use hydrocortisone frequently due to side effects, including the thinning of the skin in this area. ...Read more

Is loprox (ciclopirox) cream ok to use on my mild to oily skin on face to treat tinea versicolor or is the gel version better?

Is loprox (ciclopirox) cream ok to use on my mild to oily skin on face to treat tinea versicolor or is the gel version better?

Not much difference: The 3 topical formulations (gel, cream, lotion) available offer little difference for skin type... They just feel a bit different during application because of different consistency, but otherwise they all dry out relatively quickly and thus probably won't make much of a difference for you. So whatever you have/got, give it a try. U probably have more than just on face? Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Oily products can make tinea versicolor worse . Can loprox (ciclopirox) cream applied on face make it worse? Is it an oily cream it contains mineral oil!

Occlusion is bad: Anything that occludes evaporation on the skin is bad for tinea versicolor, a fungal infection of the skin. Best to use products without oils like a water-soluble cream. Lotrimin (clotrimazole) cream [over the counter] may help. Sometimes systemic antifungal therapy, prescribed by your doc, is needed. Make sure you wash towels in hot water and if possible bleach. This infection is spread on clothing & towels. ...Read more
